Good find ARB. If you do any
of the facebook, linkedin crap (I dont) you may find more.
No wiki info on him. Jerry had some good art back in the
late 80's as I recall. Havent seen anything since then.
Thanks for the good ol days reminder :)
Here is another fav T-shirt of mine back in those days:
remember Reebok ads?

Oh, and if the 88 show at Buckeye was a "cool drink" at
105 degrees to you Sean...then you are a better man than
Buckeye lake is back to it's original name of Legend Valley.
There is something called the All Good Fest there this year.
Whatever the hell that is (hehehehehehehehehe).

It was hot now that I think of it but it had grass which meant dew after the show. After 4 days in the dusty, baking sun at Alpine I was really happy to see grass. That's my memory 24 years later. I don't remember a song they played, but I remember the grass.

I don't know it must have been the grass
No roses or ribbons in it's wet, tick filled mass

Just joshin ya Sean. I couldnt even imagine what those
days were like from Alpine to Buckeye. The summer of 88
was one of THE hottest I have ever been through. The day
of that show was the hottest on record for ohio that year.
Combine the heat, and it being an election year, I remember
there was NO weed to be found ANYWHERE in my little town.
There was something magical about Buckeye Lake then, and
still is now:
At least they got rid of the cattle maze...

And you sure you didnt see ARB there in 88? He was wearing this shirt:

I saw them there at least once more (and why did I do this if I have so few memories: must have been the 50 micrograms every few hours in '88 for example). In '91 (my last venture) the Violent Femmes opened which in my world was up there with best opening act ever (I know Miles, ect.). They were so good and GD so lame.

I've never seen the second one shirt. I don't know how Arb. was then, but I don't think it's his style now. ;-)

btw- We had herbage in '88. Na. Na. Na. Na.

6-9-91 was the last time I saw the GD there as well. I was
center, 30 feet away watching the Femmes. They were the
shit as far as I ( and my high school) was concerned, and I really dig em to this day still. I will never forget looking around at all the elder dead heads when the VFs started playing. F-ing priceless facial expressions. "WHO?..HOW?..
..WHAT the fuck? These are the openers?!?" I laughed like
I had 50 mics in me, and went to the mosh pit. Only mosh
pit at a GD show that I ever saw. I liked the show.
Listening to it 20 years later, one can be nit-picky. But
I liked it then and still do. Its nice to know that we
were in the same crowd ;). Only, you were the one with the herb. "This will go down on your permanent record..."
I hope you remember the cattle maze too. Good times

uh-oh, dont wanna wake Dire...

That '91 Buckeye show was a hoot! The Femmes, Rueben and Cherise! All-around great vibe at that show.

cool, i never thought to do a google search for the artist name; seems he's still spreading his brand of philosophy and nothing wrong with that, and if he was the creator of the t-shirt i bought (as opposed to some other party using his art), kudos to him for crafting the only t-shirt i ever saw and liked well enough to buy; the t-shirt i had was an all white other than the sun and the moon on the back, which while i think about it more, was more of a quarter moon, on which a skeleton was relaxing; definitely good 'ol days, although in retrospect completely surreal when comparing to my now life
